I am a freelance nutritionist living in Leeds City Centre. I enjoy trying new places with healthy food claims, and I give the low down on them.

Gastronomic empire with class and style
My first impression of this restaurant. Impressive! As I looked down from the ground floor gallery, this restaurant was hemmed with grey slate curved walls, that gave an organic feel to the place.

As I walked beneath the gallery, I was further excited by the bakery, patisserie, chocolatier, wine shop, cheese shop and charcuterie, which all operate separately, and apparently supply to other restaurants within the city.

I entered the brasserie and I was met with a long menu. All the salads and pasta or rice dishes were offered in starter portions as well as main-course size. I opted for a smooth and savoury cauliflower soup with balls of deep-fried goat's cheese that melted into the liquor when cut. This starter set me back less than 5, and was exquisite.

Being a meat lover, I was a little disappointed with my overcooked pork chop, yet the rest of the dish showed due care and attention: sweet-and-sour roasted baby apples, proper fondant potatoes, the whole bound with a dense, meaty jus (not a gravy).

This gem within the city of Leeds is well worth a visit. Slightly pricey at around 75 for a meal for 2 with wine and service, but well deserving of the price tag.
